Frugal Friday 40

Happy Frugal Friday!

Here is how we saved money/spent money wisely this week:

- We received a survey code for 50 extra fuel points on our Kroger receipt. We were able to save $.10 off our gas this week.

- We had lunch at the new Moe's Southwest Grill. We had a bit of miscommunication at check-out and they didn't scan our coupon. In turn we got a free chips, queso, and a cookie! We got more free than we would have with the coupon!
**We are huge fans of Moe's as it is Peanut and MSG Free! Thus it is safe for Annabeth and myself. Also, we love that ALL of their meat is hormone free and they use organic tofu. Thank you Moe's!**

- On our can of cinnamon rolls was a Box Top for Education which we saved for my best friend who is a teacher. There was also a code for Feeding America. We entered the code online and were able to provide 5 meals for a local food bank. Checking our boxes of name brand goods, which we do not buy a great deal of, usually provide one or both of these codes. We love taking a few seconds to help others.

- Last month I received two $5.01 off coupons at Once Upon a Child. Sarah, Bella, Annabeth, and I headed up there last week. I was able to get Annabeth two shirts for FREE!

- We passed along a skirt and its matching shorts/leggings as well as a dance outfit to Bella. It is SO nice to pass as we outgrow! I cannot stand having extra things around the house.

- We ate our meals at home this week and played "Clean out the pantry" to make sure we are really using what we purchase at the store each quarter.

- Annabeth enjoyed some fun at Nana and Popi's house. She LOVED playing in their sprinkler.

Spring has sprung!

- We made homemade cards for quite a few friends who have just announced pregnancies. We are looking forward to a fall/early winter full of babies to spoil!

What have you been doing to enjoy spring lately?

Happy Savings to All!
